Sony's next-generation video game console is here. But should you choose it over Microsoft's pricier Xbox One?
FORTUNE -- Ask Sony Computer Entertainment President Andrew House about the company's newest device, the PlayStation 4, and he'll put it quite simply: "We learned a lot from challenges with PlayStation 3."

The now publicly-traded company is generous with compensation. Very generous.
FORTUNE -- Twitter's (TWTR) IPO may have been low-key, but some of its 2,300 employees have little reason to complain otherwise.

Indeed, while CEO Dick Costolo's annual salary MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Nov 8, 2013 5:55 PM ET
The company is taking a low-key approach to its public offering, according to sources.
FORTUNE -- Twitter (TWTR) may be a publicly traded company as of this Thursday, but for the company's 2,300 employees, it'll be largely business as usual.
"I don't think you will find any Twitter IPO parties in San Francisco," says one investor. "It's just not that kind of culture."

Apple's latest full-sized iPad is lighter and faster. Is that enough?

That's what Apple (AAPL) did with the iPad Air. The 9.7-inch tablet, which began shipping late last week, now weighs 1 lb and is just 0.29 inches thick MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Nov 6, 2013 10:43 AM ET

The e-commerce giant's latest quarter was more of the same in some respects -- not necessarily a bad thing.
FORTUNE -- Amazon (AMZN) has long focused on heavy investments into expansion, even at the expense of its bottom line, and the company's latest quarter proved no different.
For the e-commerce giant's third quarter 2013, it reported a loss of 9 cents per share on sales of $17.09 billion. While the loss was expected, the MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Oct 24, 2013 6:42 PM ET
